Spend Sunday morning with nationally renowned speakers discussing arts, culture, politics, and religion, while enjoying delicious pastries, bagels, fruits, and spreads.

From the New York Times culture and ideas reporter a fascinating, revelatory, and timely social history of the concept of middle age. For the first time ever, the middle-aged make up the biggest, richest, and most influential segment of the country, yet the history of middle age has remained largely untold.  In Our Prime is a biography of the idea of middle age from its invention in the late nineteenth century to its current place at the center of American society, where it shapes the way we view our families, our professional obligations, and our inner lives.
